'll do. there is a lot of commerce that flows through the area. we're out there showing that that commerce can get through. melissa: yeah. so much oil flows through this region it is essential. what is it like when they come check you out? >> it is actually pretty neat to see what that is. we have had the russians as well swris tinge us. it is always interesting to see, you hear the stories of the big bad wolf, but when you see the people close and in perp and ships alongside, normal sailors like yourself a lot of times sailing alongside looking across, looking across the water from each other. actually, brings it closer to home. melissa: what's the impression, what kind of impact do you make on them? >> i imagine we bother them a little bit that we go through each time and, i know they get on the radio or they make their, their announcements in their news how they dislike it. and i imagine no country likes that with so much american presence or any other coalition presence going through here. melissa: what do you think is the impression that the fleet gives off? what is
lie detection. there the commerce is pushing the science a little bit faster than maybe it ought to. i agree. >> the science. >> the science, right, exactly. >> ok, we have some questions from the audience that i would like to ask. and i think most of these are probably for the doctor. first question, how does the brain research impact drug cases when the defendand is an addict? >> addiction does bad things to the brain. it dramatically changes the brain. in certain individuals, there is enormous vulnerabilities and risk factors from genetics and brain function that can precipitate or make it to be easier to get addicted to drugs. and there have been, i think, quite a bit of neuroscience focusing on trying to develop better treatments for individuals by understanding the mechanism of those changes. in the courtroom, i believe that to help judges, judges when we do the education, one of my collaborators who does this work teaches them how the brain changes with addiction, et cetera, et cetera. that may be helpful for judges sentencing to drug courts for addiction problem instead of pris
, the chamber of commerce, the labor council, surrounding businesses, and many surrounding neighborhoods and neighborhood groups. why? because it's a great project. and let's be honest. nothing about the merits of this project has changed since then. eight washington will revitalize a horribly underutilized stretch of the waterfront currently cut off from the rest of the city. the only thing that's changed is a group of people have forced this onto the ballot. this is disturbing to have a referendum on a a planning and zoning matter. we know how difficult it is to have a residential project from this city and to let a group of people stop a project is very serious, and this will have an effect not only on market rate... >> president chiu: thank you. next speaker. and again let me ask if there are members of the public that wish to speak, please line up. >> i am not one of the well-healed people. i got signatures on the ballot, and i didn't pay for them, no one paid me for them. i went out and i got them. you all are being asked to uphold referendum causes. the referendum causes have been
the ecb doing the right thing. we need a stock that benefits from a rapid increase in commerce. worldwide. we need a stock that's global in reach. one that can capitalize off more business activity. we need a stock where the bad news is known but the good news isn't factored in yet. hey, we need fedex. in other words you don't want to sell this stock if you think the good central bank news is coming. you will sell a stock barely up for the year that's leveraged to play a return to robust global growth. you would sell it at a discount to where it would be if the ecb says anything good at all. second, as much as i did think it was big news it wasn't like the preannouncement was a true shocker to those who followed the group closely. six weeks ago, united parcel, a little pin action here. they trade together. told us pretty much exactly what fedex said. plenty of people must have expected the news and didn't regard it as news. just confirmation of what u.p.s. told us in july. the companies aren't that different in terms of reach or profit margin. not like the stocks levered to better economi
obama and also was secretary of commerce for president clinton and therefore is in a good spot to tell us what it is that president clinton needs to do for president obama. >> well, look, president clinton is in a position having held the office he understand it is pressure, he understand it is challenges, and i think he has a unique feel of america, about his eight years and the success in his eight years. to speak to the american people and tell them the success that has occurred in the last four years and the challenges and what has to be done in the next four years. so he is in a unique position and they are two men but they have the last democratic president come here and speak on behalf of president obama and speak to the american people and speak to democrats to get them, continue to get them enthused as they were last night when michelle obama, great opportunity for the party and a great opportunity for president obama to have president clinton speak this way. >> yes, but what do you think president obama will do for president clinton. >> how about hillary? >> look, i know ever

can build a new american dream commerce driven by innovation and creativity, by education and yes, by cooperation. and by the way, after last night, i want a man who had the good sense to marry michelle obama. [ applause ] >> i want barack obama to be the next president of the united states, and i proudly nominate him to be the standard bearer of the democratic party. now, folks, in tampa a few days ago, we heard a lot of talk, all about how the president and the democrats don't really believe in free enterprise and individual initiative, how we want everybody to be dependent on the government, how bad we are for the economy. this republican narrative, its alternative universe says that every one of us in this room who amounts to anything, we're all completely self-made. one of the greatest chairmen the democratic party ever had, bob strauss, used to say that every politician wants every voter to believe he was born in a log cabin he built himself. but as strauss then admitted, it ain't so. we democrats, we think the country works better with a strong middle class, with real oppor
